We had a long day of traveling that included a plane change due to a ‘strange smell’. It wasn’t me.
After finally arriving in Santiago, we were a little surprised by a $140 USD (per person) reciprocity fee for entering the country at the airport (good for the life of the passport). It seems that most countries have something like this now – all thanks to the US doing the same to their citizens. But, it’s still free to drive into the country. Obviously, we recommend it.
Then, it was just a quick taxi ride to see our friend Marisol and fetch the bus (they even washed it). Then, to see Benito with our piston kit order (and a nice Kleinbus Club discount). Then, it was finally time to rest.
Driving an hour and a half to the coast and back to El Quisco was a no-brainer.
Also, our buddy Kjell in Norway published an article about our camping trip with the Kleinbus Club in his newsletter. The Chile-Norway connection is complete. Our work is done here.
